NAACP nominee and bestselling author Beverly Jenkins returns
to the charming town of Henry Adams, Kansasâ€”a place that
always feels like homeâ€”in this heartwarming story of family,
friendship, and the surprises hidden in our lives.
Henry Adams has had its fair share of drama ever since
Bernadine Brown bought the town with her divorce settlement.
Now just when things are starting to settle down, itâ€™s about
to get crazy again . . .
Cephas Patterson doesnâ€™t just want to be left aloneâ€”if you
dare step onto his property, heâ€™ll meet you with a shotgun
and a warning to stay away from his gold. He reminds Zoey of
the lonely time she spent living on the streets, so she
quietly begins leaving him small offerings. But then Cephas
dies and leaves a saddlebag of goldâ€”to Zoey.
And thatâ€™s not all. Zoeyâ€™s parents are going through a trial
separation, her former BFF Devon is giving her fits, and
friend Crystal has run away from home. Then thereâ€™s
Bernadineâ€™s mean-spirited baby sister who has arrived
unexpectedly, and an ongoing battle with a neighboring town
is about to heat up.
